Inshallah Won’t Be Shelved

With the  announcement that Sanjay Leela Bhansali and  Salman Khan have parted ways,the  spin doctors  of entertainment journalism are having a  field day. There is widespread speculation about  the film’s future. Some say the  parting happened because  of   a remuneration  issue, other  are sure it was because  Salman  couldn’t give the  (huge) number  of dates that Bhansali  required.

We  shall let the speculators  have their fun. But the one fact that emerges  from  the  haze  of  hypothesis , which I  can most definitely share,is that Inshallah will be made.

A source  close to the  project says, “There is no question of  shelving  the project. Sanjay Bhansalihas  invested  a  year of his life  preparing to shoot what he feels is one of the purest love stories  to have  been made in this country. He cannot let it go.”

Sources say Alia Bhatt who  plays  the female lead  in  Inshallah has extended all her co-operation to  the  project.

“It was  her dream  to work with SLB. There is no way she can bear the  thought  of that  dream being shattered,” says  the source.

The  search for another leading man is on and  an announcement  would soon be made as  to who steps into  the  place left vacant by Salman  Khan.
